What the hell is “the church year”?

This, from my old blog, explains more of what you’ll find here.

I have lots of passions. The biggest is probably my love for the historical and liturgical traditions of the Church. While the purpose of this blog is to push the people of God to embrace new ways of being God’s people, I don’t want to forget these traditions. Verily I say unto you, the Church would not be what it is today without the Latin Mass. The Church would not be as strong as it is without a rich heritage of hymns, or without the “thees” and “thous” of the King James Bible.

I want to try bridging the gap between phrases like Revised Common Lectionary (huh?) or the Liturgical Year (huh?) and the real world. I’m going to start posting a little blurb each Sunday. I’ll (try to remember to) post a link to one of the day’s readings. Plus, I’ll offer a thought or two about the day and a short prayer. Spoiler alert: although I’ll loosely base the prayers on each day’s Collect (huh?), I want to keep things real.

Maybe you grew up going to church and just lost interest. Maybe you are spiritual but not religious. Maybe you don’t fit into any categories like that. Regardless, click on the church year above to be a part of something bigger than yourself. The Church might surprise you after all.
